, particularly in the forum that mr. romney showed up separately and mr. obama showed up separately. you promise. a promise is a promise. what do you make of that sentiment? he did not -- there are people who feel he did not push enough on immigration. >> we have to understand the country comes first. 2009 was a full-fledged economic collapse. to implement immigration reform would have been nonsensical from a political standpoint. i know there was an attempt to put some of its forward, but it got zero response from congressional republicans. i understand the promise, but i think there is a reality. tavis: for those hispanics who would disagree and say there never is i did time, black people would say, you could say it now is not a good time to end slavery or have voting rights. are they suggesting he should win another four years to press him on immigration reform? >> i think the economy has improved, and we are not in an emergency situation. the reality remains that the congressional republican party is for a much against immigration reform, so if the president is reelected, i think he will hav
forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a national symbol of the federal bailout of the auto industry and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. it saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships, but in auto parts manufactu
mr. obama's support in the midwest. he took the job's numbers as support for the central plank of his campaign, but the u.s. economy has failed to recover. >> he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. >> mr. romney's campaign is snapping at the heels of the incumbent president. his campaign organizers say they can and will win, but they can win only if they take the vital swing states of florida, virginia and ohio. anything less than the prospects receive for them. >> this race is very, very close. it may confound pollsters and pundits alike. it's not clear how or if hurricane sandy will affect the results, but i think we can venture this far -- president obama appears to be holding on to a very narrow lead. adam brooks, bbc news, washington. >> bold predictions in a tight race
, the president returned to the campaign trail today. with the election around the corner, mr. obama received a surprise endorsement. with the devastation of the megastorm consuming his attention, new york city mayor michael bloomberg surprised the political world today by endorsing president obama for re-election. in a statement, bloomberg said the hurricane's cost "in lost lives, lost homes and lost business brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief." he credited mr. obama with taking major steps to reduce carbon consumption and noted not only president obama's position on climate change, but also on a woman's right to choose and marriage equality as evidence of a vision different from that of mitt romney. the news came as the president returned to the campaign trail, stopping first in green bay, wisconsin. he revived his own slogan of 2008 to question mitt romney's ideas. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly, the very same policies we've been cleaning up after for
. >> brown: in turn, mr. obama accused his opponent of trying to scare voters over their economic futures. he pointed to a romney ad running in ohio that charges jeep is shipping jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who've been calling their employers worried, asking, "is it true? are our jobs being shipped to china?" and the reason they've been making these calls is that governor romney's been running an ad that says so. except it's not true. >> brown: chrysler has said it has no plans to move the jobs. the romney campaign insists it's standing by its claim. there promised to be much more battling over economic policy, with the race in a dead heat and going down to the wire. we look now at the jobs picture with two economists with ties to the presidential candidates: john taylor of stanford university and the hoover institution. he advises the romney campaign on economic issues. and austan goolsbee of the university of chicago's booth school of business. he served as president obama's chairman of the council of economic advisers until last year. to the extent mob set
or encourage them which from thinking they might vote for mr. obama to mr. romney and that doesn't seem to be happening right now. i think it ought to be hurting the campaign a bit. >> mark, very briefly. this is really a chance for the president to explore that illusive quality of presidential leadership in the campaign. >> this is what -- who deserves to be president. people are looking towards him, how does he lead, how does he speak for america? it's a real opportunity for him, but if he gets it wrong, that is a very big black mark just days away from the election. >> yeah, this storm, no one knows how it will play out politically. thank you both very much. you're watching "bbc world news america." still to come on tonight's program -- as china gets ready to hand over power to a new generation, the residents of one rural village talk about their expectations. >> a former bbc governor says that jimmy was kept away from children in need. jones, who was chairman of the charity, said he had suspicions about the former tv star a decade ago. his comments come on the day of whether the cor
program. i think it's-- that is a mystery to me because mr. obama campaigned and actually that was a peared back proposal from earlier proposals which involved principal write-downs. and even john mccain when he was campaigning wanted to set up a government facility to buy the funds and restructure them. that's what tarp was supposed to be about. >> rose: why do you think they were not listening to that? >> i think at the bottom line, the philosophy was just focus on the big banks. focus on the big banks, make sure we have plenty of money. and hank pretty much says this in his book and i think the philosophy with larry summers was the same. if you recall, there was an allotment of dell 700 billion. they couldn't draw it down because nancy pelosi other ands had told them they need a loan modification program. when congress approved tarp, they thought they were approving troubled asset relief, the program to get the loans off the books of the banks and restructured. they had to say they had some kind of foreclosure program to get the second $350 billion. i think what they we
seems to be engaged in, i have not seen one poll that shows mr. romney is anywhere near 270. >> therein lies the challenge for governor romney. these polls show him doing well. there are more paths for president obama. governor romney has got a lock in florida. that has not happened 100%. i think governor romney has more to look for the reagan romney again has to win virginia. it is possible to win the presidency if you do not win virginia, but it gets tough. those are states where there has been an assumption that governor romney will go with those states. he does not have them locked in just yet, and you start to talk about ohio, wisconsin, new hampshire, and nevada, they are very favorable for the president right now. it is tough for governor romney. he has got to have a global win. it cannot just be trying to figure out some mix of states to try to get to 270. there is a final push for the country decides they are ready to hire him and fire president obama. tavis: we talked earlier about this notion of being careful, how you walk this tightrope when you have a storm that is vexing s
's votes -- obama has been losing some of the women's vote to romney. >> rebalancing, the first debate not that mr. mourdock said anything -- it is obvious what he was thinking. on the other hand, what he was thinking clearly is that rape much less important than preserving a life, and for a lot of women, saying that rape isn't all that important is a very unfortunate thing. romney has disagreed with them, but he has not taken back the ad he's running for mourdock. >> every time you watch the cable this shows now, you see someone from planned parenthood, or another group pro-abortion or so forth. the obama people are running with this ball, colby. will it have legs? >> i think it will have an impact. it calls attention to paul ryan, who shares the same view that there should be no exception for rape, abortion in case of rape or anything else, except that ryan's principled position gives way to politics and he is willing to buy the mitt romney position that there should be exceptions. think people made up their minds on this issue years ago? >> they have, but it is a matter of getting p
have and dericesive. you said america has dictated other nations. mr. president we have not dictated to other nations we have freed other nations from dictators. > >> who was more pug gnashes, romney or obama? >> i don't know but i thought romney won that little exchange. he came across a lot better than the president did. >> i beg to differ. this business of the apology tour is a big lie that romney has been promoting. he titled his book to that. every fact checker that looks, i know you laugh at the fact checkers. if they say it enough time everybody who is going to vote for romney is going to believe the president apologized. they have been pushing this narrative ever since he made a speech in cairo, that is in and of itself is somehow condescending to the rest of the world. >> he never actually said i'm sorry for what we did. maybe groveling tour is a better word. in france he said americans have not recognize this had magnificent union and we have been arrogant. he also made comments along the lines of this iraq, basically attacking the iraq war on foreign soil. he goes out and
that this dog was reliable. how was it traind? was the handler traind? was it certified? and mr. gar for the state of florida said that these were extraordinary requirements and he was supported by the obama administration's lawyer who also said what would happen if the court constitutionalized these requirements was that you would start having mini trials with expert witnesses and dogs would be put on trial to determine their reliability and it just wasn't necessary. the court seemed to have trouble trying to find what kind of requirements would ensuring reliability and therefore probable cause for a search. and justice sotomayor, for example, noted that there have been some recent studies that show these dogs aren't infallible. there's one that she noted that had a 12% accuracy rate and she said she was a little troubled by that but it wasn't as clear in the house case that the justices were going to have a problem. >> woodruff: we're going to focus on the track record of those dogs. >> right, and it's hard to measure how reliable a trained dog is. >> woodruff: quickly, marcia, so
